Best City In the United Kingdom


The Top Ten

1 London London London is the capital and most populous city of England and the United Kingdom. Standing on the River Thames in the south eastern part of the island of Great Britain, London has been a major settlement for two millennia.

It breaks my heart not to see London at its rightful place. Beautiful; historical; charming; elegant. London is welcoming, has friendly, intelligent, funny individuals. It's the only place I can truly call home. It captured my heart the very first time my parents took me to visit at the age of seven. I now work in central London and adore every second I spend there. I even travel back at weekends just to be 'home' again. I would love to live and settle down there. It's the capital of England, Great Britain and, yes, the world! - Britgirl

Not just the best city in the UK, but also in the world. Pollsters do vouch for London's premier status in the following: financial, government, arts, fashion, music, transportation, tourism, software development, science breakthroughs and even top universities in education. Think of all these aspects and see if you could come up with a city that seems close. Keep on trying...

The only city here that has power, history, beautiful architecture, charm and originality. The capitol of the world!

2 Manchester

I'm from Manchester, and I'm so glad I live here! It is amazingly homey and cosy!

My family Hollingworth is from there, even have a little part of it named Hollingworth. My family was the 1st family in America in 1607 Jamestown and started their journey from Manchester. I have never been too England but I bet Manchester is the best.

3 Edinburgh

Beautiful city. Kind locals and great shopping. Very clean and safe even in the festival season

Full of English hating racists. Must be little runt brother syndrome.

The most beautiful city in the U.K. London has the size but Edinburgh is more of a looker.

4 Newcastle

Newcastle is by far the most friendly city in the UK and in my opinion the most beautiful

5 Liverpool

Beautiful and home to the Beatles

Amazing City! By far the best place in the UK. Probably the best City for music in the world and has got loads of tourist attractions.

How is manchaster number 3! Liverpool should be at least number 3

Best city in the UK by far, friendliest people and best skyline

6 Glasgow

Glasgow rules... True scots live here!

7 Birmingham

Islamabad is far better than Birmingham compare the climate and the serenity

Most underrated but up and coming city in the country.

Love birminghamm

They should rename Birmingham "Islamambad". It is difficult to believe you are in the UK when in Birmingahm.

It is a disgrace we have allowed this to happen to our country

8 Leeds

I love this city the most, its lights are amazing and I think it's a great place to visit.

It's a wonderful city for young people

Leeds is suprisingly quite a nice place now, unlike what it used to be.

9 York
10 Bristol

Bristol has become a lovely city to live in. Okay the buses could be run better but it is now a relaxing diverse city to be in with plenty of things to do for the whole family. As with any city it has things that could be improved on but I know that whatever I am going to do in my day it's going to be a good day out whether it is family orientated or just adult entertainment. There are all kinds of festivals going on with a great atmosphere. We have the benefit of easy access to other nearby places like Clifton, Weston Super Mare, Gloucestershire or Bath or crossing the bridge to Wales for a complete change depending on how we feel. As Bristol is now I am very happy to be here.

11 Brighton

Brighton is beautiful, lively, vibrant, colourful. I was born and raised there. But if home is where the heart is, then I'm happy to call London my home. - Britgirl

12 Bath

The most beautiful city in the world, without a doubt.

13 Nottingham

I lived all my life and I love it


14 Cambridge
15 Southampton

Great history, great shopping, great green space and great nightlife, although needs to make better use of tourists and advertise whats on more as it is the busiest cruise port in Europe.
Surrounded by nice places like Winchester and the New Forest as well.

16 Sheffield

The peace gardens are the most beautiful thing in the evening

17 Blackpool

Great and wonderful place, only that the trams are SOOO slow, heck the old ones are faster than the modern.

18 Dundee
19 Chichester
20 Salisbury

It houses the best preserved copy of Magna Carta in its Cathedral (which is the tallest in England) and is the home of Stonehenge (which used to be a Wonder of the World). It was also home to William Golding and Tery Pratchett lived nearby.
